How do I embed a video from the web?
This lessons covers embedding videos from the web into Content Area. If your video is not able to be embedded because there is no embed code you can simply link to it by grabbing the url and creating a Web Link to the video's address online. (Note: Many but not all popuar video services provide embed codes).
Navigate to the course area where you'd like to embed the video and click Item from the Build Content menu
Choose the HTML code button in the Text editor
Paste in the entire EMBED code from the video's website
Note: For youtube videos, the EMBED code is located to the right of the video under the URL field, and is labeled EMBED. Be sure to grab the ENTIRE EMBED CODE to copy in, often it's quite long as you can see. On other video sharing sites, the EMBED code is either located near the video and labeled EMBED or is sometimes under the SHARE option. To copy all the embed code , click in the code and triple click your mouse, then right click and select COPY. Then right click in the Blackboard Text editor and select PASTE.
